Rock slide remediation causes road closures in Carbon County

MAHONING TWP., Pa. - Repairs began Wednesday on Route 209 in Carbon County after a rock slide.

Boulders and rocks came tumbling down from the mountain Sept. 8 in Mahoning Township.

PennDOT engineers say the road will be closed in both directions during the cleanup Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. 

A contractor is removing the fallen rocks and installing a mesh netting to prevent rocks from falling in the future.

Work should be finished by the end of the month.
